The pros: Trader Joe's Mango and Cream Bars are light and refreshing.
The cons: No stick, but I'm not sure why these needed such explicit instructions.
Ah seasonal favorites. This time last year I was busy enjoying a quart of Trader Joe's Mango and Cream Ice Cream. It did not make a return to shelves this year.
While I was bummed out about that fact, I'm kinda happy I found this because it is a more portion controlled. Best of all you won't feel too guilty about having more than one of these as they are 60 calories.
I can see the biggest complain is that these are not on sticks. These are cute little bars that you'll want to squeeze out of the pouches. So, if you are too anxious and toss the wrapper, you'll need a spoon and bowl to enjoy these.
But what is in the pouch is absolutely delicious fresh as anything mango. If it wasn't frozen, you might be convinced you are eating fresh mango.
While this is not quite as pretty as the picture on the box, there is also a cream side to this bar which helps to balance the sweetness of these bars.
For $3.49 if you are looking for a fresh and tasty treat, then look no further. These are very well done and an item I've walk past a few too many times. Even my husband liked them.
